Director and Board President Receive Nonprofit Management Certification from the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits announced that 25 students were awarded certificates for Nonprofit Management through the Nonprofit Management Certification Program. Among the graduates were Jill Hazeldine, Director, and Suzanne Nichols, Board President, of the Public Health Institute of Oklahoma.  As a participant in this six-month professional development program, Jill and Suzanne accumulated 36 hours of Continuing Professional Education in the following content areas: Leadership Essentials, Managing Support for the Organization, Managing Budgets and Leading Meetings, Human Resources, Conflict Management and Diversity, and Coaching as Supervision. 

Marnie Taylor, President and CEO of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, says about the program, “Managing a nonprofit is a very challenging job and the Center is so pleased to be able to offer this comprehensive program that touches on the essential skills that are required.  A nonprofit leader is often expected to be ‘a jack of all trades,’ which is very challenging, and this program equips leaders to meet that expectation.  Nonprofits are businesses and nonprofit professionals need to have good, sound business management skills in order to move their organizations forward.  Our Nonprofit Management Certification Program allows even experienced nonprofit professionals the opportunity to learn and practice those skills.”
